I will be linking to some of the photography sites throughout the upcoming weeks!
We just celebrated my daughter's tenth birthday. I was so busy entertaining children and taking pictures of everyone else, that I didn't get any of the birthday girl! The day after her birthday, we went back to the Fall Festival and had fun, just the two of us, taking these shots! Yes, I know we all think our own children are beautiful, and I am no exception! As lovely as I think she is, Ashlyn is a million more times beautiful on the inside! She has a sweet, sweet heart. She is actually very quiet and a bit shy. I love the silly shots of her, because she is so full of adventure and life! I will cherish these always!
She loves two things...horses and her American Girl. I captured my favorite big girl doing the things she loves the most!
Of course you all know I am not a professional photographer. But, the one thing I have learned is that lighting is everything! I am also acutely aware of the environment; what things are in the background that can make a break a shot! I think props can be great, if they are used naturally.
I'll be back soon with some shots from her party!
